Santoso 2020

PGY 2 - Andrew Santoso, PhD

Medical Physics, University of Wisconsin – Madison, Madison, WI, 2019

Hometown: Onalaska, WI
Undergraduate: Viterbo University, La Crosse, WI
Doctorate: University of Wisconsin - Madison, Madison, WI

Bio

Andrew Santoso received his Ph.D. in Medical Physics from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. His research focused on using Quantitative Ultrasound, an approach to objectively characterize tissue, to quantify changes in the microstructure of the cervix during pregnancy. This was accomplished under the guidance of Dr. Timothy Hall and Dr. Helen Feltovich. During his time in Wisconsin, some of his work included creating an ultrasound calibration system for absolute measurements, development of protocols for animal research, and consenting patients to participate in studies. The ultimate goal of this work was to develop foundations for addressing public health issues such as preterm birth. Andrew started his Medical Physics residency at the University of Colorado – Denver in July 2019.

 

What do you like to do outside of work?

I like to get outside with my wife as much as possible. This includes gardening, biking, and hiking especially in the mountains. When weather doesn’t permit for those activities, I try to spend time learning how to cook or bake something new.

Coyne 2020PGY1 - Mychaela Coyne, PhD

Medical Physics, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, 2020

Hometown: Coeur d'Alene, ID
Undergraduate: University of Florida
Graduate: Purdue University 

Bio

Mychaela Coyne received her Ph.D. in Medical Physics from Purdue University –West Lafayette, IN. Her research focused on developing a compact In Vivo Neutron Activation Analysis (IVNAA) system for the measurement of sodium in bone and soft tissue, under the guidance of Dr. Linda H. Nie. After designing and optimizing the system in MCNP, the assembly was constructed, calibrated and then validated with animal studies. The use of the system in nutrition studies is expected to provide insight into the relationship between dietary sodium intake and retention in the body, including the risk of diseases like osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. Mychaela started her Medical Physics residency at the University of Colorado – Denver in July 2020.

 

What do you like to do outside of work?

I have been hiking every weekend since I moved here and love the variety of mountains and trails nearby. I also enjoy cooking, especially Italian recipes I learned studying abroad.
